Adding shoe molding or?

I'm having my floors refinished next week and need to make a decision about adding either quarter rounds or shoe molding to the baseboards which are only about 3.25 in high. My 1950 house has always had carpeting so when that is removed there will be a slight rough unpainted area. There could also be gaps between the floor and baseboard. With these narrow baseboards, what would look best? Also, is shoe molding cheaper than quarter rounds? I have one estimate which shows the shoe molding (plastic) a little higher than another estimate with quarter rounds. I want white.
